Just like we hypothesized the Game & Watch Collection will be a Club Nintendo gift when the program launches in North America. Currently, the Game & Watch Collection is the most valued item being priced at 800 Gold Coins. That translates to redeeming and completing surveys for16 Wii Games or 27 whole DS games. In real world dollars the Game & Watch Collection costs around $800 if we use $50 for the price of the average Wii game and $30 for the average DS game.
But there are some tricks you can use to maximize your game purchases and earn more coins. If you “indicate intent to buy a game” by marking it on a future purchase list and then buy it you get a bonus 10 coins. Register a game within four weeks of its launch and you get another 10 coins. Filling out a second survey 4-6 weeks after a game launches and you earn another 10 coins.
Follow these steps and you earn 80 coins for a Wii game and 60 coins for a DS game. This way you only need to register 10 Wii Games or 14 DS games to get a coveted copy of Game & Watch Collection. This still costs around $420 – $500 depending if you do this with just DS or Wii games. You might want to register those Wii Shop Channel games too since you get ten coins for each one.
